South Florida Bulls vs. San Francisco Dons men's college basketball preview

USF vs. San Francisco

When/where: 5 p.m.; South Point Arena, Las Vegas

Radio: 1250-AM

Records: USF 8-2, San Francisco 3-7

Notable: It's USF vs. USF, as the teams meet in the first day of the Las Vegas Holiday Hoops Classic. A win for the Bulls would match their total for all of last season — USF bounced back from a tough loss to Central Michigan on Sunday by beating Central Florida on Wednesday, led by junior G Dominique Jones' 27 points. Jones leads the Bulls with 18.2 points per game, and junior C Jarrid Famous had a double double Wednesday and is averaging 10.8 points and 7.2 rebounds. … The Bulls get back PG Justin Leemow, who missed Wednesday's game to attend to a family illness in New York. … San Francisco has dropped seven of eight, with the lone win against San Jose State. The Dons are led by 6-foot-7 F and former Texas Tech star Dior Lowhorn (19.3 ppg). The Bulls play San Diego on Sunday before returning home, then open Big East play Dec. 30 at Louisville.

    ST. PETERSBURG — As pleased as the Rays were to win consecutive series against the contending Red Sox, Indians and Yankees and to get briefly back over .500, there was a lot of talk in the clubhouse before Monday's game against the Angels that it was time to do better.

    Tampa Bay Rays third base coach Charlie Montoyo (25) high fives designated hitter Corey Dickerson (10) as he rounds third on his lead off home run in the first inning of the game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Angels at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Monday, May 22, 2017.

    OF/DH Corey Dickerson missed out on a good birthday gift when AL player of the week honors went instead to Detroit's J.D. Martinez. Dickerson hit .385 with five homers, nine RBIs and nine runs; Martinez went .389-4-9-7 and got the nod.

  3. Rays journal: Alex Cobb learning to work with what he has



    If this were 2012 or 2013, even 2014, RHP Alex Cobb would have problems. He would find himself working with only two of his three pitches, with the missing pitch being his trusty changeup.

    Alex Cobb, working mainly with his fastball and curveball, is 3-1 with a 2.78 ERA over his past five starts. The Rays right-hander tries to continue his strong stretch tonight against the Angels.
